At Into The Box 2021, I presented CBWIRE v1.0 and was encouraged by the excitement and feedback from the community. I'm even more excited this year to tell you about CBWIRE 2.0 and all of the goodies we've added that you can start using right away.

Highlights

Documentation

For starters, the docs have received much love. There are entirely new sections, and the docs go into much greater detail now to help you get more from CBWIRE. Check those out at https://cbwire.ortusbooks.com.

Turbo Integration

https://cbwire.ortusbooks.com/v/v2-1/js-integrations/turbo-spas

CBWIRE now plays nicely with Turbo Drive ( formerly TurboLinks ), allowing you to transform your apps into single-page applications (SPAs) with just a few lines of code. You didn't read that wrong. With just a few lines of code!

File Uploads

https://cbwire.ortusbooks.com/v/v2-1/component-features/file-uploads

CBWIRE makes uploading and storing files extremely easy. Here's an example of a simple component that handles uploading a photo:

File:
#args.error#
component extends="cbwire.models.Component" {

    data = {
        "photo": "",
        "error": ""
    };
    
    function save() {
        // 'photo' is now an instance of FileUpload@cbwire
        if ( data.photo.getSize() > "100000" ) {
            data.error = "Photo upload too big!";
        } else {
            // Store our file locally
            fileWrite( expandPath( "./somewhere.jpg" ), data.photo.get() );
            
            // Delete our file from CBWIRE's temporary storage and reset 'photo' data property
            data.photo.destroy();
        }
    }
}

Dependency Injection

https://cbwire.ortusbooks.com/v/v2-1/component-features/dependency-injection

Your components now have WireBox available for injecting dependencies such as service objects, session storage, you name it!

Validation

https://cbwire.ortusbooks.com/v/v2-1/component-features/validation

You now have the full power of cbValidation built in for validating your data properties, making form validation a cinch.

JavaScript Lifecycle

https://cbwire.ortusbooks.com/v/v2-1/essentials/javascript-lifecycle

We've documented Livewire's JavaScript lifecycle, which provides several events that you can listen for and hook into as needed.

Testing

https://cbwire.ortusbooks.com/v/v2-1/essentials/testing

You can now test your components by extending our BaseWireTest class.

component extends="cbwire.models.BaseWireTest" {

    function run(){

        describe( "TaskList.cfc", function(){
	
	    it( "calling 'clearTasks' removes the tasks", function() {
        
                wire( "TaskList" )
                    // Sets our data properties
                    .data( "tasks", [ "task1" ] )
                    // Verifies output in our template rendering
                    .see( "
  • task 1
  • " ) // Runs the 'clearTasks' action .call( "clearTasks" ) // Verifies updated template rendering .dontSee( "
  • task 1
  • " ); } ); } ); } }

    Query String

    https://cbwire.ortusbooks.com/v/v2-1/component-features/query-string

    You can now update the browser's query string when your component state changes and provide URLs for your components that populate the state.

    Dirty State

    https://cbwire.ortusbooks.com/v/v2-1/template-features/dirty-state

    There are cases where it may be helpful to provide feedback that content has changed and is not yet in sync with the back-end. For input that uses wire:model, or wire:model.lazy, you can display that a field is 'dirty' until CBWIRE has fully updated.
